CuTieS in a BooK

Or as Michelle Ridgway called them in the Handmade magazine (vol 28 #8 pg 72)...
Christmas Companions.
I'm sure Michelle has a pattern for you to purchase on her blog HeRe if you don't have this mag... & both the Reindeer & his companion GingerBread Girl are very VeRy cute.
Either companion would LoVe to call your place HoMe... so go on... make yourself a companion.
Michelle also gave instructions in the mag for a snowie Mitten as well.
Reindeer measures 6cm x 12.5cm or 3.25 x 5 inch
Ginger Girl measures 9cm x 12.5cm or 3.5 x 5 inch... & are made using FELT.

I'm adding this post to Sharon's "Lets Book It" group over on her blog HERE.
It's great encouragement to use patterns that we are storing for use on a rainy day...OR one that's been on our TO DO list for ever... THANKS SHARON

CTTY in November

Only a little project this month.
It's a "Tree" shaped Trivet.

I used the FREE pattern from HERE over at Stitching & Bacon...
BuT I feel the TriVeT should be enlarged for better use.
I will make more of these as they are FuN to do...
but will increase their size by a few inches overall.
Thanks to Anthea for hosting this group each month.
Ho Ho Ho...

QuicK IteMs

A cradle mattress cover for a BaBy doll...
GD1 needed a new cover for her dolls cradle... so Nanny made one for her babies to sleep on.
It's a really pretty fabric and matches GD1 room perfectly.
GD1 LoVeS her NaNNa even more now... lol

* * * * *
And I whipped up another Baby BiB from some scraps & a length of left over bias binding. 
I used "flannel" both front & back... & a snap fastener to close... & it's reversible too.
Into the gift box it goes... until it's needed.

HoMe AgaiN

Hubby & I had a great 10 days away... but with no sewing done... not one stitch... I am itching to get into my cubbyhole to play and stroke some fabric... lol
In the meantime... I have a couple of things to catch up with...
Firstly... I made another BanDaNa BiB before I left & have the FREE instructions...over HERE... under Baby / Children.  This time I used a snap fastener to close instead of Velcro.
Secondly... I received a gorgeous parcel from Carin in Sweden... as a birthday gift.
Carin included an absolutely beautiful shawl that she hand knitted. My photo doesn't pay justice to it as it really is spectacular. Carin also included a fridge magnet, a thimble & a "tri" shaped pouch.
ThanK YoU so much Carin... I LoVe it all...
Thirdly... I received a parcel from Peg... for my birthday as well...
Thank You Peg... for being so thoughtful...
And last but not least... a parcel from Tarnyia... for my birthday as well...
Lots of beautiful Christmas fabrics, Christmas Ornies & chockies too.
WoW... nice parcel Tarnyia...  THanK YoU so much...xox

It's good to be home... if only for another 7 days... as we are off once again...WooHoo...

A SacK

My little GD #2 needed a "sack" for Xmas like her big brother owns... so I made her one.
This time I used a Xmas Tree & Gift Boxes as the feature along with her name.
I'm really happy with how it turned out... so I wrote some instructions.
If you need or want to make a sack for a special little person on your life... click on over to my web page HERE & you'll find the FREE instructions & two templates...under Seasonal.
I included both... a Santa face & the Xmas Tree & gifts.

Thanks Narelle...
I love making a gift each month...
& your encouragement makes it happen.
